The natural healing modality “Reiki” comes from the technique discovered in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. It was further spread in Japan by Dr Chujiro Hayashi and to the West by Mrs. Hawayo Takata.
The Usui system of natural healing teaches us the “Secret Art” of “Inviting Happiness” into one’s life which can be achieved by working with the five Reiki principles. The principles help us realise that improving oneself is an essential part of Reiki healing.
Reiki Principles thought by Mikao Usui
Do not anger – Do not worry – Be grateful – Be honest in work – Be kind to all
The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ means Universal Life Energy. Reiki consists of two syllables: “Rei” which describes the cosmic, universal aspect of the energy and “Ki” which describes the fundamental life force energy flowing and pulsating in all living things. Long term practice of whole-body Reiki will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal naturally with stress and build-up toxins, cope with everyday events and gain a positive outlook on life. Reiki is a natural form of energy healing that heals on all levels – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
Reiki treatment creates many beneficial results that include relaxation and feeling of peace, security and wellbeing.
A Reiki healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration in the client’s consciousness. This will help the client to create a balance of Mind, Body and Spirit and gain a positive outlook on life.
A Reiki treatment it is “hands on” performed with clothing on and usually on the massage table.
